Ejan Mackaay


LL.M (Amsterdam), LL.M (Toronto), LL.D (Amsterdam). Over the years, my research has always been at the interface between law and neighbouring sciences, in particular computing science (computers and law; artificial intelligence and law; internet law) and the social sciences ("jurimetrics", law and economics). Currently my research interests lie principally in the economic analysis of law and in intellectual property. The economic analysis of law proposes an new reading of legal rules across fields of law to show their raison d'être and their underlying unity. It has been an important source of renewal in legal scholarship over the past quarter century. The economic analysis of law has come off to a slow start in French-speaking countries, contrary to what happened in several other legal cultures. My objective is to contribute significantly to the take-off of this approach in French-speaking legal cultures and to ensure a prime place to CRDP in this development.
